World Day of Prayer 2013, an ecumenical movement of women from 170 countries and regions, lifts up prayer and action the first Friday of March. The day (this year March 1) is centered on the idea that prayer and action go together. The 2013 theme, "I was a stranger and you welcomed me," was selected by Christian women in France to focus on immigration. Offerings collected during the 2013 services will support ministries for women in Malaysia and the overall work of World Day of Prayer. For more, call 888-937-8720.
